When Tim Rose was 12-years-old he decided he wanted to become a rock climber, after convincing his parents to let him take his first climbing trip. Now at age 29, this professional rock climber from Elliottsburg, Pennsylvania, dedicates all his time and energy to outdoor climbing goals and projects. He travels throughout the country, seeking new challenges that push his limits both physically and mentally. Tim is currently working on a variety of projects in New River Gorge, WV, which will become the hardest routes in the region.

“NuGo leads the way with their nutrition bars. No additives, clean protein and a huge variety make a perfect complement to my training,” said Tim. His favorite NuGo flavors are NuGo Family Coffee and NuGo Stronger Caramel Pretzel. Tim Rose explained, “These guys are dedicated to making a world class product. When I am climbing I take NuGo bars to the cliff with me, they help keep me going.”

In the little free time that Tim has, he enjoys creative activities, like music, art, and writing. He will be competing at the ABS Nationals on February 7, 2015. Read Tim’s blog and see stunning photos of his rock climbing and bouldering on Instagram.
